Planes did not cause collapse of the towers
On Friday, May 16, my wife and I
attended a several hours long lecture on the campus of the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology delivered by Richard Gage, an
architect and member of the American Institute of Architects, regarding
the collapse of the World Trade Center towers on 9-11.
In his talk, Gage assembles evidence
indicating that the impacts of the aircraft that hit the towers could
not have resulted in their collapse.

conspiracy theories and out-and-out nonsense over to the Middle East
where they might even praise you for being on their side!
